Belize’s Music Ambassador, Shyne Barrow, on Tuesday April 4 contributed musical equipment to start a music program at Trinity Methodist School. Barrow who has been on a campaign to increase the access of music to primary schools told the Guardian that a request came to his office from a former student of Trinity Methodist School for a Snare and Bass drum. It did not take long for the request to be considered and on Tuesday afternoon it was delivered.

Vice Principal for the school Burdette Kuylen explained that the school has been asking for donations for a long time in order to have children who are very talented in music to have an opportunity to play. Responding to the need the donation was made and Kuylen says the music program which they are planning to implement is now starting to take shape. She says that the school is actively searching for persons to do the program and already past students who are involved with music have already stepped forward to assist the school. Music Ambassador, Shyne, added that he will be following up with the school to have more equipment donated to them.

Barrow says that with the increase of violence among young people music is an avenue for those who are growing up without guidance. The schools, he said, are at times the only real place where they children are brought up and there is a need to strengthen the infrastructure in them. He said as the Music Ambassador he will always be there for the schools and in particular to promote music since it offers an alternative for young people who often times think there is none
